Bubblegum & Rainbows

Relaxing around the pool... a perfect activity for summer, and let's face it, pretty much anything goes while we're sheltering at home, so why not jump into the kids' wading pool with your cutoffs and your headphones? Nobody will care and it feels sooo good!

Happy July 4

July 4th is coming up. It's a special day for those living in the US. We like to celebrate the fact that we don't do anything quite like those living in any other country, but it should also be a time to remember that we didn't get here without a lot of help. The contributions of peoples from throughout the world and down through many centuries went into creating the American dream of Independence, Liberty and Equality. 
The US has taken some major hits in recent months and many of us are feeling a little off balance. Hopefully, the upcoming holiday will be a time to reflect on the things that really matter: Family and friends, Freedom from tyranny, Working together for the good of all, Respect for others' feelings, beliefs and traditions... the list goes on and on. 

"It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness" ~ Chinese proverb

As you light your sparklers this weekend, say a little prayer that together we can come though the darkness and make the world a better and brighter place for everyone, then decide how you personally can go about making that happen.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has ~  Margaret Mead

Celebrating in red, white, and blue in "the" Miss Independence Dress and coordinated Old Glory nails from L.S.D. Couture and Mani Pedi . Check out all the red, white, blue, gold and silver looks on this week's sale board.

Outside Looking In

We've all had the feeling that somehow we just didn't belong; that we'd been skipped over, left out, or ignored. Has it ever occurred to you that being on the outside is totally subjective? Maybe you're actually on the inside and it's the others who are missing out... 

One side of a door is pretty much the same as the other. 
What you do when you come to a closed door is the important thing.

I'm wearing a casual outfit from zOOm, with a beautifully textured sweater set and some butt-hugging sexy shorts. Available with 3 denim colors for the shorts and 5 colors for each the top and the sweater to mix and match as you wish. This EXCLUSIVE outfit is available @ Designer Showcase * till June 28.

Photos ~ After I had finished this blog, I became aware that this was a "human only" sim. Those two little words were slipped into the middle of the notecard with a VERY long description given to me by the sim owner when he invited me to use his sims for my photos.
That's on me. I skimmed when I should have read carefully. Judging from my photos, I felt the rejection even though I wasn't consciously aware of it at the time.
My avatar has never been "human" and neither are most of my friends in SL, who are a delightful mix of faeries, elves, demons, furries, Dinkies, Tinies and other critters including a few humans, all of whom get along very well because we accept each other as individuals instead of as "types". 
Since I don't want to appear to promote prejudice even when it's based on something as ridiculous as speciesism, I'm not including a LM and I won't be going back to this sim. 
SL is a microcosm of RL; acceptance needs to be unconditional in both worlds. Prejudice can be felt even when it's hidden.
